Splash paint­ing, solve prob­lems

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

You wouldn’t think wear­ing a red T-shirt would give you courage, or that a green one might help you in terms of prob­lem solv­ing. But this week­end, an in­no­va­tive and slightly left-field work­shop is tak­ing place to help peo­ple ac­cess, vi­su­alise and achieve their goals, through the use of colours and say­ing just that.

Clin­i­cal hyp­nother­a­pist and NLP prac­ti­tioner, Sarah Ab­de­lal, says colours are a key com­po­nent in life.

Par­tic­i­pants will learn about en­ergy cen­tres - chakras, and how colour ther­apy can help ‘un­block chakras’ and ac­ti­vate pos­i­tive en­er­gies within them.

Dur­ing the work­shop, par­tic­i­pants will learn their sub­con­scious goals, through ‘life script­ing’. Sarah ex­plains: “Each par­tic­i­pant will paint what they want to achieve. Dur­ing the med­i­ta­tion we will do ‘life script­ing’ where we un­earth their deeper goals. Then par­tic­i­pants are given guid­ance on how to cre­ate their vision board.

“Typ­i­cally these are done with mag­a­zine pho­tos, but we’ll be work­ing with coloured paints. They will learn how en­ergy and colours are re­lated and will be paint­ing with an in­tent to change things in their life. The colours de­pend on the chakras.

“What­ever block­ages are there in life, they may be out of the thought process at the time, so we will learn about the colours and how we can use them to help un­block the chakras.”

These styles can be ap­plied to ev­ery­day life, from paint­ing, to cloth­ing, even eat­ing. Sarah adds: “Even what we eat; colours of food have the same fre­quen­cies as chakras. So if some­one is suf­fer­ing from grief, they should sur­round them­selves with green fruits and veg­eta­bles. Wear­ing the colour helps too.”

Of course peo­ple are go­ing to be scep­ti­cal of this kind of thing, to which Sarah ex­plains: “It’s not for ev­ery­one. My hus­band doesn’t fol­low it. For this kind of ex­pe­ri­ence, you need to want the change. We don’t all need the same kind of heal­ing, so I would not con­vince some­one who has a dif­fer­ent way to en­joy life.”

The work­shop is 2pm Saturday at the Soul Art Cen­tre, see hyp­no­tran­si­tion.com
